Hilarious, but is it satire?
The catalyst for Dr Strangelove was Kubrick's concern was that a bunch of lunatics were in control of an arsenal of weapons that could wipe out all life on the planet. He intended to make a drama at first, then opted for a satire for reasons I can't recall.
However when you consider those the unhinged imbeciles in power today, its more like a documentary where the names and places have been changed to protect the insane.
What makes the current situation worse than was depicted in the film, is the president was sane and rational....a luxury we do not have tiday

Seeing this should be required
I just learned that my GF has not seen it. If you say anything about global politics (and the madmen who make the decisions) or war in general, or the future of the human race, you must see this and think about the implications.
By the way, I like that archive.org doesn't censor comments or even, it seems, have a way to report them.

One of, if not the best...
...Kubrick films. Even if the B-52 cast the shadow of a B-17.

As close to a perfect movie
About as close to a perfect movie as anyone has gotten

One of the best, if not the best, movie/s ever made
Does simply too well to describe how and why our nation currently deserves what's happening to it
And even if you take that part out, the acting & camera angles so legendary that it still doesn't matter. On the other hand, we still can't forget the rubber smooth transitions between different scenes. It's also fascinating how only a few of these actors can so stinking easily portray several men so dang perfectly. This movie is practically too good.

This is a very good movie. my only complaint is that the audio is not stereoscopic.
A lot of things said in the Movie are still valid today, even though its been decades old.
Dr. Strangelove, the Ex-German's loyalty to Hitler.
The Stereotypical Bomber commander with his cowboy attitude.
And our mad Commander Jack Ripper.
All come together in this Satire about the Cold War.

Golden Wisdom !
Excellent ! This type of movies instills wisdom necessary for the human society.This movie injects some very valuable messages - The trap of Nuclear Bomb is the most destructive one. This trap has been created by evil,stupid & power loving rascals. It is easy to destroy but hard to create.
